1-1/16" Forstner Bit
Benjamin Forstner patented his forstner bit on Sept. 22, 1874. The successful invention of the forstner bit was to make him a rich man. Without the lead screw (which Forstner calls the "gimlet-point") and cutting lips of more conventional wood boring bits it would prove especially useful to gunsmiths like himself and other high-end woodworkers. The forstner bit was unsurpassed in drilling an exceedingly smooth bore hole, with a flat bottom.
Precision ground shank on all individual bits. The bits are also manufactured from high grade carbon steel. Cut through any grain pattern even knots! Make extremely smooth and clean flat bottom holes.
